Ladybugs

Ladybugs

Who loves sweet basil more than we do? 1,600 of our closest aquaponics coworkers. It was an awesome experience letting go 1,600 Ladybugs into our backyard aquaponics greenhouse over the past few days.

We have an aphid infestation in the greenhouse and Ladybugs love to eat them. Going all natural on this effort. As I am sure most of you know, aphids will suck the life out of your plants. What is amazing is trying to let the Ladybugs go after storing them in our refrigerator. They get all over you, down your pants and on your hands and arms.

We also started wrapping the greenhouse in bubble wrap today for the coming cold months of November, December, January and February in Seattle.
